Saturday’s Accumulator Tip
Preston to beat Bradford
Both these two have faltered recently but I fully expect Preston to get back to winning ways. North End had a confidence boosting victory in the FA Cup last week and will use that to kick start their promotion campaign. With on fire marksman Joe Garner already in double figures this term they should have enough to beat The struggling Bantams. Bradford have only a single victory in their last 8 league games and will do very well to come away from this one with anything.
Sheffield United to beat Doncaster.
With Sheffield United in the headlines for different reasons this week, they will be happy to get back onto the pitch. The anti post League One favourites will be wanting to put a run together soon so that they can have a say in the automatic promotion race and this could be the perfect day to start that. Doncaster have struggled to adapt to life back in League One and have won just once at home all season.
Shrewsbury to beat Mansfield
Shrewsbury are flying high at the moment after a five match winning run in League 2 and currently occupy an automatic promotion spot. They look a good bet to notch another victory in this one against lowly Mansfield. The Stags haven't won in their last six and have scored just three goals in that time. The lack of potency up front is starting to drag Mansfield towards the drop zone and that is set to continue against one of the league favourites for the title.
Southend to beat Hartlepool
Southend could be a real threat in the division if they could find some consistency. Phil Brown has put together a strong squad and a play-off position will be the minimum of their ambitions this term. Hartlepool sit bottom of the table and have only a single league victory in eleven and their lack of goals (just 12 all
season) must be a real concern for the fans. This is a great chance for The Seasiders to put last weeks FA Cup defeat behind them and to concentrate on promotion.
Luton to beat Tranmere
Since relegation last season Tranmere have found it hard to get going this campaign and at present are second from bottom in The League Two standings. They haven't won a league match since August and back to back relegations is becoming a real possibility. Luton are heading in the other direction having won seven out of their last eight. The Hatters
are full of confidence and I can't see them dropping any points here.
